To The Girl Thinking About Rushing A Sorority This Fall, Follow Your Heart

First things first...

Don't let people make you feel bad about doing it.

So many people think that sororities are just a bunch of girls who like to party, who don't want to do anything and are lazy. But on the contrary, that is the complete opposite of what they are. A sorority is a group of girls that share the same values and want to help the community and make a difference. Yes, they party and go out on the weekends, but everyone does so it shouldn't matter that they do it, because they still are accomplishing so much on the days they aren't partying.

Most people will be confused as to why you want to "pay" for friends!

But jokes on them, you aren't paying to have friends, all the money that is given to the sorority is to pay for so many things. Recruitment doesn't come cheap, nor does it come free. There is also the fact that most sororities have houses and there has to be upkeep on them, as well as paying for the utilities. There are the events that get put on by the sororities as well that aren't cheap, like formal or any philanthropic event. You aren't paying for friends, you are paying to be able to help with the activities and important bills that have to be taken care of.

So to any incoming freshman or any current college girl that is thinking about joining but isn't sure, you should do it!

Don't let people make you feel bad for wanting to do it! Don't let them tell you "well, that's a waste of time" or "that's stupid." They aren't doing it, you are! Let them judge you, but don't let them stop you from doing what you want! If you have the means and they want, and you have really thought your decision through and you know you want to do it for the right reasons, then do it!

You can tell everyone is negative about your decision to go and shove it!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
